COMMUNITY SEVERANCE AND PEDESTRIAN NETWORK

The divisive effects of the introduction of an urban highway or other barrier are considered in terms of path differences. Although differences in trip length are likely to be small, they are sensitive to the frequency of the facilities restoring access and to the siting of these facilities. The use of a pedestrian trip model with a deterrence function would give a maximum value of the impact if an appropriate value of pedestrian time could be discovered. The impact of traffic on pedestrian crossing time and the results of a survey of the numbers of pedestrians in shopping centers are included in a report on the Conventry pedestrian survey.
